Testing Technical English Skills Online – A Flexible Approach to Ensure Hitting the Nail on the Head
To meet the needs of all stake-holders – employees, employees, colleges, teachers, etc. – a test should display the highest possible degree of flexibility. This particularly applies to Technical English in respect of such questions as: What area of Technology? What are the relevant language and communication skills to be tested? At what level? For what kind of workplace? etc. This workshop will present information on a newly developed innovational online test that gives people working or studying in technical environments the opportunity to find a tailor-made language test to demonstrate their own individual and personal language and communication skills profile – an ideal basis for starting or enhancing a career in any area of technology in today’s increasingly globalised world.

Online Testing Tools
The aim of this talk is to present various online testing tools that teachers can use to create their own interactive quizzes, puzzles and games for testing student knowledge and measuring student progress. The talk will focus on free user-friendly tools that can be used for testing different language aspects. Attendees will be shown different quiz formats and will learn how to create plausible distractors. The talk will also emphasise the importance of introducing test makers to students and encouraging students to create their own quizzes.
